NEW ENGLAND STYLE BARBECUED LOBSTER ROLLS

BY: ANDREA ALDEN & ORIGINALLY POSTED ON NAPOLEON.COM

New England Style Lobster Rolls are a delightful seafood salad comprised of sweet lobster and mayonnaise, served on a buttered and toasted roll. However, we BBQ enthusiasts have to add our special flair to things. While Lobster Rolls carry on the spirit of New England’s signature sandwich, we’ve added a delicious little spin and a bit of that smoky goodness that you love.

PREP TIME

25 Min

COOK TIME

15 Min

FEEDS

2 to 4

INGREDIENTS

1½ - 2 lbs.
uncooked lobster tail & claw
¼ cup
Chardonnay
¼ cup
butter, melted
4
top split hot dog buns
2 tbsp.butter
1rib celery, minced
¼ cup
mayonnaise
Scant ½ lemon, juiced
Salt and Peper to taste
Lettuce for serving

DIRECTIONS

1. Remove some of the cooking grids and replace them with the Cast Iron Reversible Griddle or place a cast iron frying pan onto the barbecue, then preheat the barbecue to around 400°F, preparing for direct grilling.

2. In a bowl, combine the melted butter and Chardonnay. 

3. Cut open and halve the tails. Gently crack the claws and remove the meat. 

4. Cook over direct heat until grill marks form, about 2 minutes, basting generously with the Chardonnay butter. 

5. Brush the lobster meat with the butter and chardonnay mixture. Flip and baste until the tail meat is cooked through, being careful of the claw meat because it will take less time and heat to cook through. 

6. Remove the lobster from the barbecue and allow it to cool completely. 

7. While waiting, combine the celery, mayonnaise, a squeeze of lemon – leaving whatever is left to be served with the meal – and add salt and pepper to taste. Whisk together. Once cooled, fold the lobster meat into the dressing. 

8. Turn the barbecue back on under the cast iron griddle or frying pan. Brush the outside of the buns with butter and fry them in the pan until golden crisp. 

9. Load the buns with a little lettuce and loads of the lobster salad. Serve with fries or kettle chips and any remaining lemon on the side.

These New England Style BBQed Lobster Rolls are a gourmet-style lobster roll recipe that takes the spirit of Northeastern American cuisine and gives it a little bit of the barbecue treatment. The smokiness of the grill combined with the creaminess of the dressing to produce a delicious magnum opus of a sandwich. What have you given the barbecue treatment to and how did that meal turn out?
